If Santa doesn't bring it, then it will be purchased post-haste after the day of boxingness.

Nikita. Plot holes a mile wide, but fun. Mind you you've missed most of it now.

I am not an animal. BBC animated series about talking animals (its a lot funnier than it sounds!) Steve Coogan does a few of the voices.

or

East Bound & Down (but only the 1st series), HBO series about a washed up baseball pitcher. Awesome series and Will Ferrell plays a brilliant cameo in some episodes.

The Pacific was really dull, I liked Band of Brothers but Pacific I didn't even finish watching which is unusual when I start watching something.

I don't like most the shows been mentioned in this thread to be fair ;]

Been holding off watching The Wire for ages but started watching it this week. Very good.

The Event is an interesting one. A bit like televisual crack, worth a watch.

Pete versus Life. Funny.

Psychoville. Dark and funny.

Misfits. Heroes Lite meets Shameless. Different.

The West Wing is really good and ran for 7 seasons. Don't need to be into politics to enjoy as I know loads of people who loved it without having any interest in politics.

For comedy watch Curb Your Enthusiasm or Peep Show if you haven't seen them.

I started watching The Shield and although the main character tilts me - he looks, acts and dresses like an American Grant Mitchell - its pretty good.

Showing my age here but if you've never watched Roots from beginning to end it's worth the time.

Has anyone watched Arrested Development? Any good? What tv show is it similar to?

Also: Firefly

Any other tv show recommendations, pls post itt.


I've got the first two series of Arrested Development on DVD and am watching them again (nearly finished series 1) with my girlfriend. They are very funny but I dont think they are that well known over here as they were never shown at a sensible time.

There are loads of actors you will recognise from a vatriety of films (and a Strokes video).

Well, maybe not the best ever but certainly a contender.

Just gonna start watching Nip Tuck, been meaning to do so for ages after I watched a few eps on tv a while back.

Kimber is well hot!





Famke Janssen (from Rounders ldo) is in it for a while as well, her character has a secret that I'll not spoil.
